|The sign on the side of this Lewisville gas station (corner of Old Orchard and Main St.) in Lewisville was a little scrambled. "WE APP YOUR BRECIATE USINESS" should have said "We appreciate your business," but was installed with the panels out of order.|

|Firefighters Extract Driver from Wreck
WhosPlayin News 2015/1/25 10:20
|Saturday afternoon, around 3:30 p.m., a driver who was having diabetic issues was being pursued by Flower Mound police, who thought he might be intoxicated. The driver drifted into the curb and flipped his car into the grass.|
Flower Mound firefighters and EMS personnel were quick to respond to the scene, and extracted the driver from the car, which was upright, but very smashed.
A firefighter crawled into the passenger seat with the victim to attend to him, while other firefighters put a tarp over them to protect them from glass. The firemen cut out the windshield and used hydraulic spreaders and cutters to remove the driver door, and cut the front pillars to peel back the roof. They then carefully secured the man to a backboard and extracted him from the car, taking him to a waiting gurney.
The accident happened on F.M. 2499, just about 1,000 feet north of Presbyterian hospital.

|An artist shows off a painting of the Lewisville City Hall at Painting With a Twist.|
The Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce joined Painting with a Twist for their ribbon-cutting event Thursday night. The facility, open Wednesday through Monday each week, offers a painting class where students follow an instructor in creating their own version of the masterpiece chosen for the night. Best of all, it's BYOB, so if you would like to partake in a glass of wine to enhance your painting skills, that is welcomed.
